The new AMD B550 chipset is here at last, and with it comes a new range of motherboards from Gigabyte AORUS. B550 offers up many of the features of X570, such as PCIe Gen 4, but just a little dialled back to save you from having to pay more than you really need to, or even want to. The B550 AORUS Pro Motherboard is one of the more high-end options of this new mid-range chipset, offering up a really solid feature set at a competitive price. Plus, fans of previous AORUS motherboards will be pleased to see they’ve kept the aesthetics in line with their other products.

While the chipset may be more of a mid-range option, the CPU support isn’t. It’ll still handle the flagship AM4 CPUs from AMD, and overclocking should be a breeze thanks to the 12_2 phase DigitalVRM and 50A DrMOS. Big heatsinks around the CPU, heatsinks on the M.2 drives, and robust build quality overall. It’s still got surprisingly robust connectivity too, with 2.5GbE LAN, USB 3.2 Gen 2, Type C, HDMI output, and extensive RGB connectivity options too.

What Gigabyte Had to Say

“In the dark, starless night, the falcon strikes fear into the heart of its prey. Even with minimal visibility, the falcon pinpoints its prey and patiently anticipates the perfect moment to swoop in for the kill. The falcon with its laser sharp gaze dominates the darkness of night in the same manner that AORUS Core Lighting illuminates the vast AORUS ecosystem.” – Gigabyte
